Car: nissan
This is my street setup
Buddyclub P1's 16x7.5 +22 all round
Image

view from the drivers seat

Okay i bought the car last year, came with a few goodies:
r33 brakes up front
EMS Stinger
Profec B II
Nismo short shifter
2 way
pedders lowered shock/springs
unknow nissan larger rear swaybar
vertx style rear bumper,sideskirts
Gktech style exhaust manifold
gt2876 .86
Buddyclub P1's 17x8s and 17x9s
fmic, fuel pump, fuel rail, injectors, fpr, engine damper, full exhaust, nismo radiator cap.

Shot of under the bonnet then.
Image
Power it was making.
Image
I liked how it drove for a few months, then i started to hate the turbo lag this sucka had.
At the time i didn't know it had the .86 hosuing on the back, so i decided to get some Tomei 260/12mm cams, type A valve springs and adjustable cam gears.
Got them fitted and the tuned and i ended up with this much power, the injectors were limiting the power. It got slightly better response, but nothing like i wished so i sold the turbo. It was a real hard decision to make of which turbo next to get, it came down to the gt2871 52T .64 or the disco in .64 .I eneded up getting the 2871, and a stock s15 exhaust manifold.

After getting the turbo swaped i had this much power. I was really happy now with the turbo response. 17psi @3700
Image

Shortly after doing this i got my self a oil cooler and a justcrap radiator followed by HSD HR coilovers. Then ventured down to wakefield for the first time.
shot street tyres and hand timed i did around 1.18

I couldnt get power to ground very well so i went and bought lots of bushes and fitted them, then i bought some cusco castor rods then got a wheel alignment, i got a better than what i had before, but it was more drift spec.

aligment was:
-.5 all round
toe out all round
front caster maxed

getting serious about accurate lap times i bought a lap timer
Image
went down to wakefield
on better street tyres i did 1.13
car handled much better, result was shown in the drop in lap time.
The motor started to show signs of bearing failure, which i knew was coming cos its an old motor and i upped the power alot.
so i bought some stuff for it.
Image
took it out myself
Image
got the motor back
Image
put it in
Image
external gate in all its glory
Image
while the motor was gone i put the battery in the boot.
Image
After getting the motor in i got it tuned, not to happy with the response as when i put the external gate on the manifold i got rid of the split pulse wall inside of it, so i think that is the cause of my missing response. im leaning towards a tune length manifold or a gktech one again.
Also the coils have had it by this stage too. 14psi comes on now at 3900 and 20psi at 4200. so i want to improve that soon.
Image
Since then i have recently added external coils
Image
Which now brings me to my next goal of getting under 1.10
The 17's are now my track wheels, fitted with Toyo r888's
Image
ive had another alignment this time its:
-3.75 front camber
toe out 2mm
caster max
rear camber is still -.5 cos the bushes wont allow for anymore camber. so camber arms are on the menu.
toe in 2mm

brakes now have slotted rotors all round, EBC REDS brake pads, fresh brake fluid.

so i think i have a right ingredients for sub 1.10's
im also looking forward to the track day coming up on the 28th of march at EC, never been there before so it will be fun.

That looks like a nice buildup. I can't see any reason why you can't get 8's out of that car

I thought you two guys were on the drivers list at the autosports forum. Should be a real fun day at EC, so far the car list looks like a good mix too.

Very nice build.

With what you have the car can definitely do a 1:08 for sure. Just a matter of getting track time and getting familiar with the car.

Have you lightened the car at all? If so that would certainly help the cause.

I havent decided if I am going to the EC Autosports day as yet.

EC Autosports day is full.

8's should be a piece of cake. I do low 8's in my street-trim sil80 with less power and bucketloads less money spent than your car

Okay just came back from Wakefield, was 36 degrees down there today but my lap timer said it was in the 40's.
There was lots of traffic on the track today and i couldn't get into a rhythm. I managed a 1.11, i did a few 1.12's.
My tyre pressure hot was 28 all round.

Does that track get more slippery as it gets hotter?
One dude in a evo said he can usually do consistent 1.06's but today couldn't go quicker than 8's today, said it was too hot.

For weight reduction i have removed
- black tar from boot to the start of the dash (cbf taking dash out)
-boot trim
-spare tyre
-ac
-reo bars

I see you are advertising your shell on NS. Whats up with that? Did you have a change of plans?
